Israeli forces raid homes of Fatah activists in Tulkarem

Tulkarem - Ma'an - The Israeli forces conducted an inspection and apprehension campaign against Fatah activists in the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem on Wednesday morning.

The soldiers raided the home of a captain in the Palestinian preventive security service 45-year-old Munthir Ikbariyya. His name had previously appeared in the amnesty list which Israel sent to the Palestinian Authority on 19th July 2007.

Ikbariyya told Ma'an that he has been 'wanted' by Israeli authorities since 2001 for his activism within the military wing of Fatah, the Al-Aqsa Brigades. Since then, he has survived several assassination and apprehension attempts.

Standing opposite his damaged house in the Shuwaika neighborhood of Tulkarem, he said, "Long ago I stopped any military activity, and I do not even take part in any rallies. I just follow directives from the preventive security service and I have no weapons except the one I carry while on duty inside the headquarters."

"Despite the fact that I was pardoned according to the Israeli amnesty list, the Israelis always have the same pretext - he intended to attack Israeli targets," he added.
